L0363: Multi-Hazard Emergency Management for Higher Education

Course Goal:

To provide institutions of higher education with knowledge and planning strategies to better protect lives, property, and operations more effectively and efficiently within the context of comprehensive emergency management.

Course Objectives:

By the end of this training, participants should be able to:

  • Define comprehensive emergency management

  • Identify the process and benefits of conducting a risk assessment
  • Create a partnership with internal and external stakeholders
  • Identify and assemble a planning team
  • Develop or revise a multi-hazard Emergency Operations Plan (EOP)
  • Develop and implement a strategy for training and testing an EOP
